About

Minus – minimal yet stylish

I am a fashion designer with a love for shapes. I like to use simple shapes and lines to create clean, down-to-earth designs. I started making bags when I couldn't find the style I wanted anywhere. I decided the only way I could get what I want was to make it myself.

Since then, I have been making bags and home accessories for friends and family. Like me, they could not get products to fit their needs, and knowing of my fashion design background asked me if I could help them out. Over time I have designed a range of bags that are simple, versatile, and most importantly durable. A friend told me about Etsy and suggested that I really must introduce my products to the public. It is a fantastic idea! 

No matter what products I am creating. I make and remake prototypes until I achieve the best proportion and details. I cut and stitch all my items one by one, and it is such a wonderful process to see the stitching and shape forming together beautifully. I love using quality materials that are both nice to the touch yet hard wearing. And they are sourced entirely from local shops and British and Italian manufacturers.

So why did I call my lifestyle range Minus? Well, I've always been a believer of less is more, so by stripping away the unnecessary, you are left with a more versatile item that can be used for more occasions and for a longer time. Hence, Minus Lifestyle began.

Thanks for taking the time to read about what I do. I hope you have time to take a look. Remember...add more to your life with Minus.

CARE INSTRUCTIONS
Traditional Waxed Canvas
Traditional waxed canvas cannot be washed or dry-cleaned. Allow any mud to dry, then gently brush off with a soft, lint free, fabric pad. Sponge with cold water if needed.
Always allow to dry thoroughly after use in a cool, airy environment.

PACKAGING
All orders are handpacked by me with care and attention. I try to use recycled materials as much as possible to reduce costs to both you and the environment.

WHOLESALE/CONSIGNMENT
Minus is a small scale designer maker studio. Because of the handcrafted nature of my work, it is very labour intensive and I can only make a limited number of bags in a day. Therefore, I neither wholesale nor consign my work.
